4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Neat authentic general store. It makes a great stop for ice cream. The prices were decent. There are also a few nice shops in town. The dock area is very pretty.

“What a Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

In June 2012, we took a 7 day Holland America Cruise Line trip aboard the lovely Zuiderdam to Alaska.If anyone is going on an Alaska cruise in the foreseeable future, don't miss the excursion to Carcross, in the Yukon.. Whether you take a bus or the wonderful train, you are in for an adventure. On the way to the general store, you will go by the most beautiful northern lake, Emerald Lake that is so green you will not believe the colour is real. It looks as if its been photo shopped. This area is so full of surprises! The mountains covered in snow front a desert a real desert, unbelievable. In addition to the mountain goats and the occasional bear sighting, this excursion is one long adventure. And if you have a knowledgable guide you will visualize the journeys the gold miners took during the Klondike Gold Rush.

The Mathew Watson General Store brings to life everything we believe one would find in a frontier general store during and after the Gold Rush Among the separate rooms you will find Native artifacts, as well as Native artworks and a general store that sells t, Royal Canadian Mounted Police memorabilia, northern clothing. souvenirs, buy a beautiful native art inspired mug. And if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth have a large exceptionally delicious ice cream. There's so much more to see in this nostalgic general store!
